Box braids are far from a hairstyle trend; they’re a beauty staple. With so many ways to wear them, the possibilities for a chic look are endless. However, if you want to take your braided hairstyle to the next level, why not add colored braids into the mix? The perfect way to jazz up your look, box braids with color can easily make quite the style statement, even when you keep the rest of your look on the simple side. And with so many hair color trends to choose from, you’ll likely find the right shade to suit your taste. If you’re game for a new set of colorful box braids, you’ve come to the right place! Click through the following slides to find the perfect colored braids for you.
Trust us, you can never go wrong with this luxurious shade of red! The perfect cross between the decadent, rich hue you love and a warm pink color, this gorgeous shade makes for a hue so vibrant you’ll swoon. Best of all, this beautiful color will really make your box braids pop. After all, who doesn’t love to have all eyes on their mane? Spritz your locks with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color in Raspberry for a temporary burst of color that will wash out with your shampoo. Now, you can switch up your look without any fuss!
For those who can’t resist the urge to play with color, this mix of colors may be the perfect match for you. Blending shades of golden blonde, black, and violet, this bold look doesn’t play it safe, and we absolutely love it for exactly that reason! Instead of sticking to one color, this look allows you to add depth and dimension to your braids for a style no one will soon forget.
If you're starting with black hair, add colored strands to your look with the help of the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Creme in Medium Golden Blonde and the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Purple.
Braided bun styles are all about taking your mane to new heights, and this deep auburn and red velvet shade does the same. And there’s no reason you can’t do both. Why not rock a braided bun with a red velvet shade woven throughout? The true epitome of a versatile color, this red hue looks amazing on all skin tones. Bring this look to life with the help of the L’Oréal Paris Feria in Deep Auburn/Red Velvet for high intensity and shimmering color that will surely make you stand out in a crowd.
While a true purple shade steps into bold color territory, you can soften up your colored braids by opting for a lighter lilac shade or even a pastel lavender hue. The shade not only looks fantastic, but it allows you to experiment with the color purple without taking the plunge and coloring your locks a deep shade. Far from what you think of as classic purple, this color closely resembles a cotton candy hue and is the ultimate treat for your tresses.
If you’re still not 100% sold on purple strands, one of the best things about this look is that you can try it on for size with the help of temporary hair color. Pick up the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Pastel Lavender to try out this cool shade without making a full commitment. Add a lightly deeper purple to the top half of your braids for added definition and richness—if you dare.
Highlights are an amazing way to transform your colored braids. A great place to start for those who want to color their hair without a full color job, highlights add vibrancy to your hair while complementing your features. For the sake of following trends, red highlights are certainly an option to consider. They're gorgeous, flattering, and equally versatile while still playing it somewhat safe. Even better, blend multiple shades of red through your mane for a head full of warm, colorful highlights.
If there is one color trend that has reigned supreme in the beauty world, it’s neon shades. Reminiscent of highlighters, these colors call attention to your hairstyles and make a pretty bold statement. If you’re looking to take a step on the bright side, a neon shade will take you there. Try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color in Neon Yellow to brighten up your day and your box braids.
This gorgeous color is a top pick for those who like adding warmth to their box braids. Reddish-brown hues with hints of ginger naturally complement your features, hence why you’ve seen this shade all over your social media feed, worn by Hollywood A-listers and influencers alike. An undeniable trend, this flattering color can be worn year-round. Ready to give it a try? Spice up your box braids with the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Chic Auburn Brown.
